The Borlaug Institute for International Agriculture at Texas A&M University embraces a positive and diverse working environment. We encourage qualified individuals to apply for career positions and other employment opportunities that come via the institute’s various international development initiatives.

We are interested in connecting with you even in the event that none of the positions currently advertised through the AgriLife employment system suits your area of expertise. The Borlaug Institute encourages you to file your résumé and/or curriculum vitae through our résumé and curriculum vitae upload page.
The Institute will keep your information in a database and will contact you directly to seek an official application if your expertise is suited to one of our future career opportunities in Texas or at one of our international development project sites abroad.
Career vs. Collaboration
The Borlaug Institute fills administrative, long-term career positions at headquarters in College Station, TX as those positions come available. But collaboration with The Institute can take place in a number of ways, one of which is through shorter term employment in one of our ongoing development projects across the globe.
Collaborating as a project participant is a job that can last a matter of months to several years, depending on the project by which an individual is employed. The type of person most commonly employed by an development project of the Borlaug Institute is a scientific or administrative professional with extensive experience in their respective field. These individuals typically consist of university faculty and other industry and scientific experts whose skills complement project objectives.
Project jobs are filled as contracts are awarded to the Borlaug Institute to begin development work. This means new opportunities for collaboration arise throughout the year. To be considered for a position in one of our projects abroad, we encourage qualified professionals to preemptively submit credentials by using our résumé and curriculum vitae upload page. The Borlaug Institute will store your credentials in a database and will contact you directly to seek an official application if your expertise is suited to one our projects.
